View Virtual Classroom Reports
The Virtual Classroom tool on Blackboard provides a convenient Attendance Report for each session. This feature records all attendees who have logged into a virtual classroom session, resulting in a more accurate count than manually checking attendees one by one. The virtual classroom attendance report is an exceptional tool with regards to seeing which attendees were logged into each virtual classroom session. Additionally, the report tool provides information about the start time, end time, and duration of the session.
It should be noted that the attendance report is only available after the session has ended. Additionally, the session does not have to be recorded to be able to use this tool.
